Looking for a healthy, fun, outdoor activity to fill the long summer evenings?

Look no further! Our summer orienteering league runs every Tuesday evening from the 8th of May until the end of July. Each week we will be orienteering in a different forest in and around Cork city and county. At each event there will be a Short course and a Long course on offer. The Short courses are perfect for families, juniors and individual beginners at orienteering, and the Long courses will suit anyone already familiar with the orienteering.

Beginners and families are more than welcome, and we will have someone on hand at each event to show you the ropes. Why not bring your friends and join in our team league? Start them off by navigating to !
